Featured TA & Training Program

The PSEG Foundation has partnered with Sesame Workshop to develop Let’s Get Ready: Planning Together for Emergencies, and Here For Each Other: Helping Families After Emergencies, free emergency preparedness and response initiatives in English and Spanish.

The initiatives are aimed at instituting emergency preparedness into families’ routines through simple tips, strategies, and activities, as well as prepare families with effective and comforting ways to respond when a disaster occurs. The APP and associated materials can be used in the home, as well as the classroom.
